Method of preparation Vegetables should first be boiled,
then mashed in a blender, and then strained. It is important to strain
the vegetables until the baby is about 7 months old. After the baby
is 7 months, straining is not required because vegetable fiber is very
nutritious and contains certain useful toxins.
Quantity of feed Begin feeding the child with a couple
of spoons and then gradually increase the quantity every succeeding week
to the limit accepted by the baby. Dark green leafy vegetables,
carrots and pumpkin are very healthy.
Salt, butter and other additives There is no need to add salt to
the vegetables, since there is enough sodium in the vegetables. The baby's
system is not ready to handle too much salt in the first few months of
life. Ghee, butter or cooking oil can also be added for flavor as
well as for calories.
Iron and Vitamin C Vegetables like spinach are high
in iron. In order to improve the absorption of iron into the baby's
system, you need to give vitamin C. Vegetables like tomato and cauliflower
contain vitamin C and therefore can be a good complement to spinach.
Multivitamin drops also contain vitamin C and can be given once a day,
right after a meal.
